WHAT IS DENTAL CAVITIES -CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS

Overview of Dental Cavities?

Cavities are also known as tooth decay or dental caries. These are caused due to the destruction of tooth enamel. There are different varieties of cavities. The most common type among them is coronal cavities which affect the chewing teeth. This disease is a serious problem which cannot be taken light. This can also lead to other major illness. Dental Cavities are not just caused by food, but there are many other factors that help in their production. Human lifestyle and oral hygiene regimen and some other dental products lead to the growth of Dental Cavities. There are many reasons, which lead to tooth decay like consumption of food which mainly of sweets and carbohydrates. Regular smoking, heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages, improper attention toward dental care and use of unsuitable toothbrushes are the main causes of cavities.

Attack of cavities on teeth:

When a cavity deepens into the tooth, it produces increased sensitivity to foods that are cold, hot, or sweet. A cavity on front tooth can be easily seen by a person. All cavities cannot be detected easily because they cannot be seen outside and they develop underneath the surface of the tooth. Only the dentist can confirm their presence during a regular check-up. If a dental cavity is ignored for a long time, symptoms like toothache and bad breath can be seen. Some cavities can only be detected by using X-rays and other dental equipment.

Expert suggestion in reducing cavities:

The only way to address this problem is to set an appointment with the dentist. The problem can be resolved by removing the part that is decayed by drilling and replacing it with a tooth filling. The materials like amalgam, composite, glass ionomers and porcelain are used for tooth filling, which are safe for using. However, when a tooth has some repair, the nerve gets aggravated and as such whenever a dental filling is done, it does not work as strong as natural tooth enamel. It is better to treat dental problems before they occur. Sometimes this cavity infects majority of the tooth surface and the tooth has to be removed. These removed teeth can be restored with dental implants or bridges.

Avoiding cavities:

Steps to be followed in removal of cavities:

Proper brushing in the nights can reduce the cavities. Usage of mouth wash solutions after the regular meal can reduce the attack of cavities. The fluoride used in the mouth wash makes the enamel more resistant to cavities and can be directly applied to teeth through doctor suggested fluoride toothpastes, supplements, medicated dental treatments and varnishes, and fluoridated water. Usage of neem related products are very hygienic to the teeth in reducing the cavity effects.
